Let me give you a some historical prospect on the beer being bad. Back in the USSR (also known as Soviet Union) - all beers were sold in a half liter glass bottles only. Cans of beer were only in capitalist world (I'm talking 1970's). All beers were lagers - no ales. So the only way to know if beer is bad - take a bottle and turn it upside down. Do you see a lot of yeast on the bottom of the bottle - forget about it!

Not entirely true, the most you might get is an extra month.

The colored glass is to reduce the exposure to ultraviolet light, since the UV light reacts with the hops to form the "skunk" smell/taste.
This might be true ,it's only been seven years since I retired from AB.
